Cooling Vest recommendations

Hi all,

I’m looking into getting a cooling vest that I can wear for the uncomfortable summer commute on the London tubes. Any recommendations much appreciated and I’m looking at a price bracket around £150-£200.

Thanks lots

Jo

Do you think if I order it from Amazon to Saudi they’d be useful in 50c heat 🙄

@schjo – My Thermapparel vest has dispatched from the US an is winging its way here as I type.

They offer at least a 10% discount to flirt time buyers. I can’t speak for it yet as I have no experience of one.

Using my Monzo card (no FX fees) it was £145 with shipping because I jumped on a deal. I reckon you could smile nicely and twist their arm for a similar deal (assuming you are in the UK) if you came via a referral!

Bloody autocorrect – first-time buyers. Flirting has zero to do with it!

@dominics haha ok sounds good thank you I will look them up. Would be interested to hear how you get on with yours. Last summer in London was a nightmare, my heat intolerance has really increased as never needed a vest before but no way I’m doing the tubes without one this time lol

How do cooling vests work?

@cosine These days you also get ice style vests where the cooling packs have some sort of clever chemistry in them which means they can ‘refreeze’ at above zero temperatures. That is why I am trying the Thermapparel. It seems easier to blahlg fridge space and hide inside for 30min than get access to a freezer.

Funny, I just ordered my cooling vest, also from USA to ship here in Israel, this week. Will report in when I try it out! The heat must have gotten to some critical mass to make us all order one at the same time! Mine is the ergodyne chill 6665 evaporation cooling vest, whatever that means. But I ordered it in lime green, so there’s that. 😎
